Musonda uploaded a story to his Instagram, captioned with a six-week countdown until training for the 2021/22 campaign begins.
The 24-year-old hasn’t kicked a ball for Chelsea’s first team since January 2018, due to several loans and awful injury luck.
Now seemingly fully fit, he will be hoping to break back into Thomas Tuchel’s squad.
Blues fans wanted nothing more than to see Musonda succeed and hoped his development could remain at Stamford Bridge.
Here’s how they reacted on Twitter:
His perseverance after all of these injuries is amazing. I really hope he can find his way into our team somehow.

Its been a tragic tail of set-backs and disappoints for Musonda up until this point.
He joined Chelsea in 2012 as an exciting young talent, who quickly rose through the youth ranks.
Opportunities in the senior side were few and far between, so the Belgian opted to cut his teeth elsewhere.
A move to Real Betis in 2016 began his loanee cycle, one that was followed by a disappointing spell at Celtic.
Sandwich in-between those two transfers was a brief stint with the Blues for the 2017/18 term.
In total, he made seven appearances for Antonio Conte across all competitions.
His final action in a Chelsea jersey came against Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League.
Vitesse came calling in the summer of 2018 and this is where things began to spiral.
From late 2016 onwards, the forward has been fighting a cruciate ligament problem in his knee which limited his progress.
Whilst with Vitesse, he underwent surgery on this issue in 2019 and is yet to make a professional appearance since.
To all Musonda’s credit and endeavour, he’s been battling hard to make his long-awaited return.
Going off his latest social media post, the exciting attacker might be very close to his shining moment.
